The first Plate Semi-Final was between Coverton Road and Bridge House. Coverton Road had regained their early morning form last time out and swept into the Semi-Finals 4-1 whereas Bridge House edged a 4-3 win over Aint Got A Clue to reach this stage. Bridge House were on a run of 3 consecutive wins so must have been high on confidence.

Ian Balding drew first blood for Bridge House and it was a goal that gave his side a 1-0 lead going into the break. The onus was on Coverton Road to chase the game to keep their tournament alive and inevitably there would be gaps at the back and Bridge House took full advantage. James Harvey made it 2-0 and from then on Bridge House were ruthless.

Alex Mitchell made it 3-0 before Harvey completed a fine hat-trick with goals four and five. Ali Phipps made it 6-0 as they put Coverton Road to the sword. It was a fine victory and they were off to the 2011 Valencia Fives Plate Final.

For Coverton Road it was a cruel exit for a team that contributed a lot to the tournament. We wish them well in future tournaments.

 
 
 

If the first Plate Semi-Final was emphatic then the second Semi-Final was just as conclusive. Longest In The Shower came into the game with injury problems mounting. A game against Kings Old Boys was always going to be tough but with players out of action was going to be a real challenge.

Kings Old Boys record now read 3 wins, 1 draw, 1 defeat and a fourth win would see them reach their first eurofootballfives.com final. It was an opportunity they were to take with both hands. The first half was pretty even and Kings Old Boys edged it to lead 2-1. Like the first Semi-Final though the team leading at the break kicked on to surge into the Final.

Kings Old Boys scored four unanswered goals in the second half to complete a 6-1 victory with the goals shared around Adam Edwards (2), Martyn Kent, Alan Jones (2) and Mike Diprose all on the scoresheet.

Alas, it was farewell to Longest In The Shower - for today's tournament at least.
